Design Protection

We are experts in protecting industrial designs on a global scale.

The law defines a registered design as the overall appearance of a product – the shape, configuration, pattern or ornamentation which give the product a unique appearance. A valid design must be both new and distinctive.

The design of a product is one of the key features of its success. The safeguarding of such an integral part of your enterprise means your design needs to be registered.

How we can help:

We are experts in protecting industrial designs on a global scale. From novelty searches and assessments, product design registration, to invalidity proceedings across multiple jurisdictions.

Preventative action:

  • Product design strategy advice and planning
  • Novelty searches and detailed result analysis
  • Design registration (national and international in over 170 countries)
  • Design portfolio administration (e.g. renewals)
  • Monitoring of design databases

Responsive action:

  • Responding to refusals of design applications
  • Negotiations – e.g. in case of infringements
  • Drafting contracts – e.g. for IP transactions and licensing
  • Invalidity proceedings across multiple jurisdictions

What Our Clients Say

Among the most dynamic and responsive IP Offices we ever worked with. People are well educated and know their business, they are perfectly linked around the globe and there is barely an IP topic where they can't provide a well-thought solution.

I've been working with Max and the team for a number of years now. They have helped me with multiple trade marks, objections/challenges and advice around the technicalities of the law. I would highly recommend talking to them if you're looking for great customer service, advice and results!

Thank you to Max and the whole team! Your work is always of a high standard, professional and timely. I highly recommend Max and the team to any organisation needing IP support!

Anthea Thomas
Director, Hypnobirthing Australia

Excellent service, great result. We initially had issues with our trademark and called them to lodge a declaration to support the mark. Our mark was finally accepted and we believe this was only due to the thorough and detailed documents that were submitted to the trademark office. Great work!
